Show Horses

These are photos of some of our show horses - past and present - with the most recent horses listed at the top.   We enjoy getting out to show our horses and prove their ability.  We enjoy making this a family event, so we've also included the family horses, too.  We also have included foals that we have produced or horses we have trained that have gone on to do well in the show pen with their new owners.
